limited by american law right now. because u.s. law pro ibt hads assisting a government or a military that came to power through a coup. and right now the malian government that we are trying to support in their efforts to control the rebels and to control the al qaeda and islamic militants in mali came to power through coup. so we can't provide them direct assistance. so u.s. law prohibits that. we're finding work arounds what that mean as secretary clinton laid out today is that by this weekend there will be military trainers in the area to train african militaries to go into mali, we'll be paying for that. we will be helping to fund the airlift to bring in a french battalion. there will be about 600 troops coming in with tanks to mali. so there are work arounds but there are restrictions that prevent the u.s. military from getting directly involved in mali. >> what can we do to support the french? >> the french have asked the united states for a number of things. the mallian government has also asked the united states for a number of things. right now the u.s. is agreeing

republicans do, will they shut down the government. >> no, not over the debt ceiling. they may over the continuing resolution this is not their best vehicle. my guess is what they will probably have to do is give him a short-term extension. and then see if the senate will go along. they being of course the house republicans and just try to prolong this fight for a while. they don't want to have-- not shutting down the government is really spooking the credit markets and everything that major talked about a moment ago. and how the president would handle short-term extension is another matter. i think that would back him into a corner. he also ran into a problem because both in response to major and in response to julianna goldman he said i'm not going to negotiate over this. if they want to have a conversation, i'll be happy to have a conversation. i'm not quite clear sure how i distinguish between conversations and negotiations here. so i think this is only one of a number of pieces that are going to be played out in the next couple months. in many ways the continuing resolution and so-

world governing body of the sport, i am not sure what exactly kind of information he had about those people, it is the president of the international cycling union, his name is pat mcquaid and heimer brugan who is also an honorary member of the international olympic committee, he is going to come out and give some information about them, amount their involvement in possibly doping, doping him, to the anti-doping agency and it could really bring down the sport. >> rose: how did he get away with it for so long, david? >> there are multiple aspects to that, one is sort of the practical aspect is that the reputation of anti-doping testing, what is done in the lab far, far exceeds its capabilities, so there was this idea, anti-doping, the drug testing, not the legal investigation but what is done in the lab has this reputation among people that, okay, they are passing tests, you don't have to worry about it now we can say it is clean if you pass the test that's fine and lance really used that, never failed a test i am the most tested athlete in history and i think people who sort of follo

government could compensate you for it and after an extended period of time it was illegal to own these. the problem with america you couldn't do that. there are 300 million guns in circulation. and i don't think any american under the right to bear arms amendment in the constitution, any conif you confiscation. in california they got 2,000 handed in, in one day. it was a start. people were handing in rocket launchers, charlie, in los angeles. you know, i look at britain. i look at australia. i looked at the reaction that happened to those massacres there, and it was very different to here. it wasn't awe political issue. it wasn't 11 and right. the australian prime minister, john howard, wrote in the "new york times," fascinating piece about -- >> rose: what he did. >> he was considered pretty far right conservative, but he brought in really draconian gun control, and as he pointed out,ain massacres per the port arthur massacre which was a tipping point in the previous 10 or 12 years, i think it was. and since 1996 not a single one. and in britain a very similar story. >> rose: do

compel us to settle centuries-long debates about the role of government for all time but it does require us to act in our time. (applause) for now decisions are upon us and we cannot afford delay. we cannot mistake absolutism for principle or substitute spectacle for politics or treat name calling as reasoned debate. we must act knowing that our work will be imperfect. (applause) let us of us now embrace with solemn duty an awesome joy what is our lasting birth right with common effort and common purpose with passion and dedication let us answer the call of history and carnto anncertain future that precious light of freedom. >> rose: joining me now from washington, d.c. al hunt of bloomberg, jodi kantor of the "new york times," john dickerson of "slate" and cbs news. here in new york, mark halperin of "time" magazine. al, let me start with you. before we talk about the speech, just talk about the ambience of this inauguration. >> these are wonderful weekends. this is a long weekend. whether it's republican or democrat people who come are in a great mood of celebration, they're walking th

program on the u.s. postal service team, so right now, the government is deciding whether to. >> the crt:. > a plaintiff and hearing they should do, make that decision as early as this week, and right now lance is sort of trying to beat them to the punch by offering not only his testimony against the team owner and some other people on the team but offering millions of dollars, to give millions of dollars back to pay the, repay the u.s. postal service on some of the response sorry ship money on the teams so he is trying to make anticipateds on that and that's the most serious thing he faces right now. >> rose: someone else told me the hardest thing he had to do is tell his children. >> no kidding. ieani was just talking to my mom about this the other day, and for those of white house are parents, you know, you might be flawed, but in the eyes of your children, you are perfect, at least for a certain amount of time before they grow up and realize that is not true so i really can't imagine what lance had to face, he has five children, when he sat them down, if he sat them down yet, and

checks. gun registrations, registration files that the government can follow, the sales of guns is up to 65%, 70%. before newtown and even a week or two after newtown more americans were against banning assault weapons than were for banning assault weapons. now a month later you actually is that becoming a 60/40 issue. the numbers haven't looked like this in decades. they didn't look like this after columbine. they didn't look like this even after the '94 bill was passed. i think there's great opportunities politically now and the only question is whether my republican party, especially in the house of representatives is going to recognize the political reality before them and realize that newtown changed everything. >> rose: and what did it change for you? >> you know, i got elected in '94 and i'mu sre you remember, charlie, in 1993 you had waco, you also had ruby ridge, you had a couple of incidences, tragedies, that really inflamed the right and made gun ownership far more symbolic. for me, though, over the past year it wasn't just newtown, though newtown was really the final st

from now then maybe the idea that government can be hipful to people, go back to what bob carry said that whole idea what we can do with collective action has returned because we've spent a couple decades with 9 idea that government was the enemy. that would be a big shift if that's possible. the only other thing i would say i think he needs to think about the economy even if it's beginning to recover there's still a problem for the manufacturing base not being here, for are kids not being trained correctly, for getting more jobs that are really good jobs for people here. there's a lot of ideas that have been put forth but they need to be focused in a certain way, the idea if you work hard you really can get ahead in this country just like people did in the old days. >> rose: i want to come back to that. michael. >> there are all sorts of reasons for optimism but since we're talking about history, one cautionary note. lbj at the beginning of 1965 i think bob will confirm this, said to his staff you may think i can do anything. big land lied, big democratic congress. actually i got si
